||KEY RESEARCH IMPACT
|Alumni of the Department are design thinkers. This is an increasingly valued skill in the business world. Honours graduates can register as senior candidate technologists or interior designers. To be a professional architect, interior architect or landscape architect, one must obtain the professional master’s degree in one’s chosen field. This is followed by a professional exam for which practical experience is required. Graduates can then register with the relevant professional or statutory bodies. Postgraduate qualifications are also a cardinal part of the pathway to academia.
||EBIT’s Department of Architecture focuses on the design and realisation of meaningful environments for users across varying scales. It houses researchers in the complementary fields of architecture, interior architecture and landscape architecture who understand the unique synergy of the three fields, and approach these with a respect for both the landscape and cultural context.
Heritage and cultural landscapes
Human settlements and urbanism
